Gay couple, one South African the other Irish
Johann and Mark are great hosts: welcoming, caring and friendly. I really felt at home! Thanks again for a great stay.
I can only say Amazing!
From first contact we have had a great experience.
My partner Richard and I have nothing bad to say about this apartment and the hosts. Mark and Johann went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Who would want to stay in a hotel after having this experience.
Location is great, close enough to walk into the centre or hop on a bus a few stops. Very peaceful for a good nights sleep away from the bustle of the city. My partner loved the fact he could get up and jog around the famous Phoenix Park and come back for a proper cup of coffee.
I would not stay anywhere else in Dublin on my next visit.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Dublin with Johann and Mark. The apartment was clean and tidy, and just a quick bus ride into the centre of town. The guys were great and willing to assist whenever called upon. I would definitely recommend staying with these guys, which I hope to do again some day.
Five Star rating! After more than a month (email hidden) accommodations, this was # 1. Need we say more..... My 10 yr. old daughter and I stayed with Mark and Johann for a few days and had a fabulous time. We were warmly welcomed, given a tour of their place and what was available to us. They provided help in many ways; maps, a phone to use, touring suggestions, etc.
The simple perks were well received-like a set table for breakfast each morning. Most of all, their kindness and vibrant personalities won us over! Thank you Johann and Mark for everlasting memories!
Kind, giving, wonderfully social, these are just a few words describing Mark and Johann. Their home is welcoming and lovely. Our accommodations were comfortable and cheerful. With each conversation we wanted to know them more. We were fortunate to have had such a delightful stay on our first Airbnb experience.
We recommend highly this residence and its proprietors.
Johann and Marc are a charming, warm, loving and open couple, whose vivid presence stayed with us long after we had left Dublin to continue our exploration of Ireland. They made us feel very much at home.
Their apartment was comfortable, in a setting close to nature, yet handy for interesting sites and getting around.
Johann and Mark were delightful hosts. My husband and I arrived on a cold rainy spring evening in Dublin and were greeted with warmth and tea. We very much enjoyed simply relaxing and chatting with these two worldly and wonderful gentlemen. Their guestroom is lovely and the private bath as well, both tastefully decorated. They provided a simple yet delicious breakfast. And they also went out of their way to help us in our plans for Dublin, everything from maps to restaurant advice to arranging for a jump-start for our rental car! Highly highly recommended. We feel like we simply didn't just stay with them, but rather gained two new friends. (As a side note: these guys are a study in how to perfectly host guests via airBnB.)
Absolutely grand! We had an amazing time in Dublin and a major factor to that experience were our two wonderful hosts, Johann and Mark:) Everything is as described in the text+photos=even better. Room was excellent, bed very cozy, bathroom clean and spacious, a lot of clean towels in it. The rest of the apartment had a very homelike feeling to it and we enjoyed spending time in the living room drinking tea and chatting with our hosts. There was a fresh and amazing breakfast every morning waiting for us; even on the last day altough we left the flat at 6 in the morning. As it was mentioned before we also got a local cellphone and our hosts were at our service the whole time. They provided us with a ton of useful information and tips. The flat is cca 10mins walk to the Heuston station which is a big lusa (tram) station and a final destination for a 747 bus which drives to the airport. If you want to take a bus, the bus station is just around the corner altough we liked taking a walk in the morning by the Phoenix Park. Another great fact is that the Phoenix Park with all the deers plus the Dublin Zoo are also really close to the flat.
When we come back to Dublin, we will surely stay with them again:) Highly recommended!
Staying with Johann and Marc was a superb experience. My wife and I had a great time at their place.
The room is very nice, it includes a private bathroom, and the bed sleeps perfect. Also the apartment is very clean and they make you feel at home, even give you a local cell phone in case you need anything.
They take really care of their guests, are always ready for tea and a nice chat. In our opinion a five star hotel equivalent and a must stay when visiting Dublin!
Mark and Johann are the ideal hosts for any type of traveler. They were warm and welcoming for the moment we arrive until the end of our stay. Their apartment was just as pictured, clean, comfortable and safe. They were more than happy to give us restaurant recommendations and help us decide what to do each day. They even provided a cell phone, maps and a tour book!! When I was there I actually became ill and needed to see a doctor for a prescription and they instantly and happily called a doctor to their home so we didn't have to go to urgent care. Above and beyond what we could have expected. Will recommend then to anyone!
Though I wasn't home while Johann was at my place, it was really easy to comunicate with him by e-mail and he was very helpful for me to organize his stay. Very recommendable people!
